Reincarnation

by David Sunfellow

Here’s what “the Father of NDE Research” Dr. Bruce Greyson thinks about reincarnation: “What is my personal view of rebirth? Many of the cases that we have are unexplainable in terms of western medicine, but they are also unexplainable in terms of the reincarnation hypothesis.

Heavenly Humor

by David Sunfellow

When it comes to near-death experiences, God — and His/Her/Its many representatives — often display a terrific sense of humor. This is one of the most important characteristics of the Divine — and also one of the most overlooked and/or downplayed. On NHNE’s NDE Stories website, several NDErs mention God’s sense of humor, and also comment […]

The Power of Prayer

by David Sunfellow

Near-death experiences champion prayer as a super power. Along with meditation (feeling the Presence of God), feeling and expressing gratitude, cultivating a sense of humor (which includes not taking ourselves too seriously), and learning how to see things from higher perspectives, near-death experiences indicate that prayer can produce miracles. Here are a few quotes from near-death experiencers that illustrate the power — […]

Why It’s Important To Know About Shadow Issues And Work On Them

by David Sunfellow

Quotes “Here is a universal truth that everyone needs to know: Spiritual experiences, including near-death experiences, DO NOT perfect the human side of our nature. Spiritual experiences can, however, blind us and make us (and others) think we are more developed than we actually are. If we focus too much on the spiritual realities of […]

NDEs on the Importance of Plants, Animals, and the Earth

Take Care Of The Earth, The Animals, And One Another NDEr Oliver John Calvert “I heard a voice say to me ‘You have not fulfilled your purpose here.’ “And I said, ‘What was my purpose?’… I didn’t have a clue. I truly didn’t have a clue — how to live, what life was about, what it was […]

Near-Death Experiences That Predict The End Of The World

by David Sunfellow

What are we to think about near-death experiences that predict the end of the world?  Are these dramatic, mostly apocalyptic predictions reliable? Where do they come from? And what can we learn from them?

As an example of the kind of dire predictions we are talking about, this resource page begins with a 15-year-old Jewish boy describing his apocalyptic near-death experience. That video is followed by several more dramatic NDE predictions, including predictions from George Ritchie, Deputy Marty Breeden, Kathy Baker, Reinee Pasarow, Howard Storm, Kenneth Leth, and Mellen-Thomas Benedict.

Then we hear from Robert Mays and Kenneth Ring, two NDE researchers who examine this topic from different angles. Mays examines several current predictions that are waiting to come true, while Ring discusses a series of 1988 predictions that failed to materialize.

One important point worth noting: According to Mays, only four percent of the near-death experiences collected by IANDS contain future global predictions. Only four percent? Why so few? And why are most of them so dire?

Finally, this page includes comments, videos, links, and other information that explores the exceptionally poor track record of apocalyptic predictions (both past and present, from near-death experiences and elsewhere) and offers some concrete advise as to how to face — and constructively shape — whatever future awaits us.

Dr. Yvonne Kason – What I Learned From My Four Near-Death Experiences

by David Sunfellow

Having had four NDEs over the course of my life impacted me profoundly. As a medical doctor, it prompted me to shift my medical specialty into pioneering STE research and counseling. My personal struggle for understanding convinced me of the need to spread awareness of STEs, and to affirm that they are not hallucinations! My NDEs also impacted me profoundly personally, as a spiritual seeker. My multiple experiences on “the other side” taught me many spiritual truths. The most powerful lessons I learned were these…

Near-Death Experiences & Suicide

by David Sunfellow
